    "Miss Silver, Where have you been my whole life?"
    Any additional comments?

    I decided to order this book because I needed a mystery, but could not take another book filled with sick, twisted serial killers and depressed, heavy smoking, hard drinking detectives. I love mysteries and while The Jo Nesbo's of this world write a great book, I just had to launder my brain and cleanse it of the horrific images and circumstances dreamed up in novels like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, etc.

    Enter Miss Silver. Well written cozy mysteries, with a terrific look at 1940's and 1950's England and the comfy tea, toast and flannel which accompanies the era. The mysteries are not so easy that they are solved early on: the plots are clearly drawn and the characters introduced in such a manner as to make them familiar. The narrator, Diana Bishop is PERFECT.

    What I can't figure out is why the BBC or Masterpiece have not taken these stories and turned them into a series! They keep re-making Miss Marple (who I do love) every ten years or so until I could practically recite A Pocket Full of Rye – why not try something original and use Miss Silver? There seem to be more of books to utilize and the stories are wonderful!

    Anyway – this was my first and I found you do not need to start with book one. The Key was an excellent mystery combined with a little espionage and lots of great village flavor. I immediately ordered another Miss Silver and have almost completed that as well. Thankfully, my spirits have lifted and all thoughts of gruesome serial killers have fled my mind!
